    Remember that Apple vs. Samsung battle? Of course, how could you forget? It's only been one of the hottest topics in the mobile tech world for the past year and a half (or more). Still, we have had a brief lull for a while as everything starts working through the appeals process.

    Speaking of the appeals process, something new just broke recently, at least in the UK. Earlier in the year, Apple lost their court fight against Samsung in merry old England. The judge in the case indicated that the Samsung products were unlikely to confuse consumers because their stuff was not "as cool" as Apple's products.

    Afterwards, the UK Judge even ordered Apple to publicly apologize to Samsung and admit that Samsung did not intentionally copy Apple's designs. Of course, Apple appealed this verdict, and that is where the news comes in today. That appeal was thrown down, and Apple has once again been ordered to share with the world that Samsung didn't copy their products. Here's a quote with some additional detail,

    It's intriguing to see that the decision is "valid throughout all of Europe" even though the ads only need to be in the UK newspapers and websites. I wonder if this result will have any bearing on the U.S. appeal? Probably not, but we can cross our fingers.

    Not for a while imagine as Apple still has one more appeal they can go through. And we all know Apple isn't about to admit they made a mistake and called Samsung copycats.

    apple needs to get off this high horse and stop trying to be an anti-trust company, google uses linux to power the tablet and a GNU policy, samsung follows this..
